"So, we are back home in cold Norway after 3 days of great brutality and fun! It was amazing to finally play at this great festival, even though the damn weather gods did not want us to play at the big stage obviously, both Kraanium, and the dfoa crew managed to make the best out of it in the party tent, and what a slamming party it was to play in there.
"And to all of the people who thought our singer was shouting 'fuck the weed,' he actually said 'fuck the WIND' since it ruined our chance to slam it out on the big stage, buhu!:( Met alot of great friends, both old and new, had a great time there for sure!
"Thanks alot to all the people we meet and all the people who checked us out, bought our merch, took pictures/ videos and came talk to us! It means alot to us to see that people appreciate what we do, and support us! Also thanks to all the great bands who played there and made this a great festival yet again. Last but not least: To everyone who bought our merch, took pix or videos of us, get in contact so we can put this up on our page!"

"ROSTOCK: Marcus & Christian from Love life booking for setting us up with the gig and taking great care of us. Larser & Börner from Acranius & Traumatic defilement. And Ronny Baltic sea photographic for cool pix!
